The NBA Conference Finals: The lay of the land
Having dispatched the defending champion Golden State Warriors, the Lakers now find themselves on the cusp of a sensational turn around this season. Standing in the way of their path to the NBA Finals are the No. 1 seeded Denver Nuggets. Do LeBron and Co. have what it takes? On the other side, we’ve got the team that everyone fancies, the Boston Celtics. They were close last year, but no cigar.
